Abstract : Our research is concerned with the development of high performance simulations of non-equilibrium flows in arcjets, with the specific aim of identifying and quantifying frozen flow loss mechanisms and channels. Further details of the research can be found in technical articles cited in this report, as well as in several forthcoming papers.
